Ramadan, in Islam is the ninth month ninth month of the Muslim calendar and the holy month of fasting. It is important for children to learn about various cultures and traditions when building an inclusive school or at home library. 

Here are some of our favorite Ramadan picture books:

Lailah’s Lunchbox by Reem Faruqi and Lea Lyon is another important read for all children to understand and support others who are fasting.


Ramadan Around the World by Ndaa Hassan and Azra Momin is a beautiful look into Muslim communities all around the globe.

However, she breaks her fast early and her family helps her learn all the other ways her can participate in Ramadan.
